Become an industry-recognized Certified Safety and Health Official TM (CSHO). The Construction Industry CSHO Track is designed for personnel who perform safety and health work on a daily basis in construction environments or have safety responsibilities over others at those locations, including inspections and audits. Our General Industry CSHO Track relates more to personnel who perform safety and health work at industrial facilities or have safety responsibilities over others at those facilities or locations, and whose work includes inspections and audits.
As part of the TEEX mission to develop a skilled and safe workforce, TEEX introduced its CSHO program that is approved for use of VA education benefits almost 10 years ago. The TEEX CSHO has gained recognition in the industry with an average of 100 graduates each year in the program. The program consists of core courses and electives related to specific industries in order to give a safety manager, supervisor, and/or director the knowledge to manage a successful safety and health program within a company. You can leverage your CSHO training for college credit at these institutions of higher education. We have articulation agreements with colleges and universities that will grant college credit hours for completed TEEX courses, which can be applied toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. Some agreements are tied to specific college majors. Others refer to the general over all acceptance of TEEX training.
Once you have started work on a specific TEEX CSHO track, you will be exempt from any new TEEX CSHO course requirements (with the exception of new OSHA Training Institute and/or regulatory agency rules, standards, and requirements). You may choose to adopt the new TEEX CSHO course requirements (where applicable and allowable).
Contact TEEX Customer Care Center to review your training plan(s) prior to applying for program graduation.

Once you complete your CSHO track, you can further your studies through continuation of training in an endorsement.
A minimum of 50 percent of the courses must be taken through TEEX.
* All MEDIC, American Red Cross, National Safety Council or equivalent First Aid instructor cards are acceptable as long as they are current. If you did not take your First Aid/CPR training through TEEX, you must send our Customer Care Center a copy of your instructor card as verification of training. This should be done after all CSHO requirements have been met and you are submitting your application.
